what i intend to do. >> steve weiss is the man who wrote that letter to the president. he's joining us now live from nashville, tennessee. steve, let me read a line from the letter you wrote in an e-mail to the president. i am hoping this e-mail does reach you, but i'm realistic that is most likely will not happen. how shocked were you when the president of the united states gave you that shoutout yesterday? >> well, i wasn't totally surprised when he did it because i'd gotten a call from the white house staff the day before asking if they had my permission to use the letter in the speech itself. and they went through the details of what that would be and what he would say and how he was presenting it. so i got the shock out of my system the day before when i got that call. >> it must have been a real shock. did the president accurately describe what you wrote? >> yes, he did. that is the letter. if you've seen the letter, those are my exact words that he quoted. some of the other stuff's paraphrased but clearly represents the message i meant to deliver. >> what compelled you to write

of his former aides to talk to the news media, including me. i have spoken to steve boylan, his former spokesman in iraq. steve tells me general petraeus authorized him to speak to the news media. first, let's be terribly clear. general petraeus still putting out his words, his version of events through many of his former military aides. as for miss broadwell, she will have to speak her piece when she chooses to. you know, i think that it's also worth absolutely noting by all accounts as far as we know, david petraeus did not plan to resign. this relationship we have reported broke up four months ago. he knew he was under investigation. broadwell knew she was under investigation. for the last four months, at least. if not even before that. he has known all about this. he has known it and it was when he was confronted and asked about it by the director of national intelligence and apparently told he needed to tender his resignation that then this actually happened. >> so maybe a little bit of spin as well in the, he decided to do the honorable thing and step forward and resign versus yo
are turning to steve sloan. tell us about the time line this week. caller: the president begins with a series of meetings with corporate leaders over the next few days to reestablish his relationship with the business community after his election. it all culminates on friday with a meeting with congressional leaders to discuss how to move forward on the fiscal cliff. host: what has each side said moving into the negotiations? i know that there was a white house address west we from president obama. caller: the president continued to push for revenue of, saying it was vital to be part of a balanced solution. notably, he said nothing about raising tax rates. many people are taking this to assume that he is open to that revenue by closing loopholes as opposed to raising tax rates. on capitol hill, most republican leaders, including john boehner, have shifted in recent days, and they are talking more about their openness, much more so than they were before the election. they are saying that they are open to revenue, but only in the formal closing loopholes, not raising rates. host: the front page
security team. here is what steve tweets -- morris in san diego and joins us now, a republican color. caller: i have no confidence whatsoever in this national security team. i have less confidence a denture the president. i think this whole thing leads right to the white house. write to the oval office. president obama has made some statements already there are so contradictory there is no way he can explain the contradiction of his comments. you talk about a transparent administration -- yes, there are transparent. you can see right through them. there are as corrupt as any i have seen. i think this will lead to impeachment. i think he will be convicted of it as well. host: here is what bill says on twitter. charlie on the independent line. caller: i am not happy with senator mccain. he lost the election. he is still trying to get even for their loss of the election. he is a great supporter of our country attacking iran. how many soldiers and how many people will get killed because of the disaster that would be if we got involved in iran. he should be one of the people doing the new
% republican. tom coburn is a 100% republican. steve largent when he was in congress, 100% republican. matt salmon back in congress, a 100% republican. you remember back in 1994, we got into congress. we were conservatives, but we were all populists. and we constantly were doing battle with what we called the thurston howell iii wing of the republican party. i thought that wing was dead. it is hard to imagine listening again this morning to mitt romney's statement that this party, two years after a tea party revolution that led to the largest legislative landslide in american history nominated a thurston howell iii republican to be their standard bearer. it's just shocking. >> well, it's not so much unlike 1994, joe, because that's another huge republican congressional win that was also fueled by populism. i think there's no doubt that the republicans react to the macro lessons for their brand and for the experience of 2012 are going to be looking for leaders who are more populists. you can't just wait for the presidential campaign because it's too far down the road. there are lots of poli
